K4L holds careers day at Thetsane
Kick4Life attended a careers day at Thetsane High School for Grade 11 and Form E students to share tips on how to choose careers and how to navigate life after high school.
K4L was one of several organisations, alongside Thetsane High School alumni and motivational speakers who shared experiences and advised the learners on how they can secure the best future for themselves.
Topics covered included avoiding negative peer pressure, with two students brave enough to share their drug misuse experiences, which they both said started during the COVID break. These students stated that they were both drug free now and advised the others not to engage in such activities. One of the students stated, ‘The sad thing about being tempted into using drugs is that your friends will advise and teach you how to use them but will never teach you how to quit. I was advised by a random person who told me that drugs are dangerous for my brain and will affect my behaviour.’
Elizabeth Yelimala, Kick4Life's Senior Women’s team coach, advised students interested in sports to consider a range of possible career paths such as sports medicine, sports law and sports marketing among others, with Academy Director, Maleshoane 'Lash' Mokhathi, wishing all of the students well in their upcoming examinations.
